Reflection: Checks for Understanding Fractional Parts of an Hour: An Investigation - Section 3: Active Engagement


Some students grasp this concept immediately and others struggle.  I monitor them and check for understanding and immediately intervene if they are confused about how we are dividing up the hour into fractional parts.  I ask guiding questions to redirect them or give extra scaffolding by counting out the fractional parts of an hour with them.  By this, I mean that for 5 minute increments we count together by fives to sixty and for 10 minute increments we count together by tens to sixty.
